I just realized I answered May's question....  OOPS.

My favorite classic is East of Eden by John Steinbeck. It was the first book that made me fall in love with proper literature. I read it in high school and my love for books has never been the same since.

  1. I haven't read anything by Lauren Oliver. Rooms looks like an interesting story.

  2. I feel like the narrator is about to own someone and I'm almost sad we don't get to see it. Happy Friday and I hope you enjoy!

  5. Rooms looks like an interesting read. I like the artwork on the cover.

    I believe I own East of Eden on paperback, but I've never read it.

  6. I am currently reading EAST OF EDEN for the first time, as part of the Classics Club Spin Challenge. I am just plodding along. I read about three or four pages a day. At this pace I will be done by Christmas, I think. I am seeing the biblical allusions though and that is interesting. My BB and F56 quotes

  8. I have not read East of Eden, nor have I read any of Steinbeck's works 😲 I should probably take the opportunity and do so soon.

AVAILABLE FEBRUARY 5TH!
RATED PG
86 minutes
AMAZON US

Illumination and Universal Pictures present The Grinch, based on Dr. Seuss' beloved classic. The Grinch tells the story of a cynical grump who goes on a mission to steal Christmas, only to have his heart changed by a young girl’s generous spirit. Funny, heartwarming and visually stunning, The Grinch is fun for the whole family!



REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.
